Some of Sachin's shots yesterday.

I felt Sachin was not at his best,but somehow managed to score at a fast clip.What still keep Sachin good stead is the fact that his trademark straight drives and gentle timing through the covers were spot on.

He still is quite far from the pugnacious free flow Sachin that we have known for 16 years.But I must say that 16 years is quite some time and His mind must be thinking of the various injuries he's had over the years,so he's cut down on some lesser percentage shots,which involve lesser returns and also pose a huge risk.

Right Below Sachin's Video is Dhoni's innings .Dhoni played a wonderful hardhitting innings which ensured India didnt fall prey to the phenomenen of "fallin like nine pins " once the lynchpin Sachin departed.
